Welcome to the website of Church of the Palms, a part of the United Methodist Church, where we believe a life connected to God, and a life connected to one another, is the most meaningful life there is!
To support the Kairos Weekend April 28-30 at Allendale Correctional Institution the Brothers! of Church of the Palms gathered to baked 109 dozen cookies.
The oatmeal, chocolate chip, sugar, snickerdoodles, and peanut butter cookies will be shared with both the participants in the spiritual weekend retreat and the rest of the population in the institute.
Additional cookies baked or purchased at home will be added by folks at Church of the Palms.

A significant milestone in the construction of the Christian Life Center was achieved this Tuesday when the concrete for the pad was successfully poured.
It took over 232 cubic yards of concrete in dozen+ trucks and skilled workers starting at 3 a.m. to get it all done.
In the meantime, site work continues with work focused on electrical utilities and completion of the drainage system. Also, the footings for the portico are being constructed.
Thank you for your continued support and prayers.

The Sunday School message of faith, hope, and obedience created a lively discussion among the children as we were immersed in the furnace with Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego.
